4. Let's look at what the term "mandate" means
1. An authoritative command or instruction.
2. A command or an authorization given by a political electorate to its representative.

I have asked Clinton supporters just how mandated healthcare insurance (attempted like in 1993) is going to either get implemented or get passed as law. All I get is the usual schoolyard name-calling and other childish antics. No answer...just bullshit.
